About Me

My photo
I have spent a great deal of my life battling illness. I suffered from Crohn's Disease and eventually had abdominal surgery, thwarting the Crohn's and budding cancer cells. Since my surgery in 1995 I have been relatively free from Crohns', although I had several subsequent surgeries related to my ileostomy..When my disease was in remission, I don't think my husband realized how bad it could get, but he has stood by me. I also have suffered from various autoimmune disorders and am diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Disease. Fortunately, I am maintaining and do not need dialysis at this point. We adopted our son and later found out he had cerebral palsy, so he became my career. Dan has had two surgeries and tons of therapy and is able to walk because of it. He is a college graduate and is employed as an Information Specialist. We are very proud of his accomplishements. I am now part of the retired generation and still getting used to the idea. I do enjoy crafting, traveling and being with family and friends. I am active in my church and feel that the hardships we endure are there to build our faith. I like to live life in the "now" as we never know how much time is left.

Sunshine and Lollipops

Okay, so I have no lollipops, but plenty of sunshine!  Yesterday we went to the strip mall and the only things we bought were from the thrift store.  I got a cute nautical top.  We just weren't in a big shopping mood.  We then ate outdoors at a Sonic, which was the first time we had been to one.  Think fast food.  We enjoyed it and my bff had some decadent chili fries!   

We then sunned ourselves at the pool.  Last night I cooked and made linguini with clam sauce.  We had a salad with it and none of us were super hunger!  We always manage to eat....LOL. 

Today is pool day again and then tonight we will go to Mel's Diner.  It is a diner with and 50's/60's theme, mostly rock and roll and delicious home style food. 

My poor cousin is suffering with her broken leg and still has to work!  Keep her in her prayers.  She is so hoping to go to visit her grandbaby for Thanksgiving and prays she won't need surgery on her leg.
